Hard to be certain: Ultrasound is never 100%, but several findings are suspicious for endometrial hyperplasia or even cancer. For instance, if your lining is excessively thick for your age or if there is a suspicious mass seen within the uterine cavity on the sonogram, hyperplasia or cancer may be present.

Yes,: but not reliably. Regional bowel gas can obscure pelvic lymph nodes. Also the position of the ovaries is variable, and they may not be situated next to internal iliac nodal chains. So not seeing enlarged lymph nodes on a pelvic sonogram is not sufficient to exclude them. CT or MRI is much better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
